Sabbath boys reschedule lost shows and hit stages with double power

 

Black Sabbath finally recovered from a temporary black out caused by Ozzy's sinusitis, and hit American stages with double power. Ozzy is back in form, and the Tacoma gig, the first the band played after the pause, was, as fans witnessing, the real show of the century. The guys were literally on fire, Ozzy singing excellently, and Tony soloing like a demon of metal.

Our team had a exciting story told by Graphic designer Kyler Sharp, who made a stunning artwork for the exclusive posters for Tacoma gig. Here's Kyler's story in his own words:

"This is going to happen!!!! I still can't believe it and I did it. This almost didn't happen and Ozzy getting sick this week was only the last of many hurdles I had to jump to get this poster completed and approved… Ozzy getting sick was the straw that almost broke the camel's back! I was on the phone with Ozzy every day since last Saturday making sure he was resting, taking his antibiotics, flushing his sinus with salt water, getting plenty of Vitamin C and resting his voice!

Seriously though, this is surreal to me and I never in my wildest dreams would've thought that I'd get to do a poster for this band. That's right… I got to do a poster for BLACK SABBATH!!!!! Come on now!!!! BLACK SABBATH!!!!!!!!!! One of the most important bands in Rock-N-Roll history!!! They're in the Rock-N-Roll Hall Of Fame and they're THE most important band TO Heavy Metal because they really were the first band widely considered to be Heavy Metal when that term was being thrown around some 47-48 years ago….

Definitely one of my all-time favorite bands EVER!!!! Their importance to Rock-N-Roll cannot be overstated. Their impact and influence is immeasurable…. this is just a fact. I cannot even begin to express how excited I am to have gotten the chance to do this art for this band. Art that almost didn't get done because of two prior rejected designs (Sharon Osbourne rejected my first two designs before approving my third) and having almost no time to beat the deadline to get 450 screen printed posters printed up and to the venue by today!

Yes, it's for tonight's concert in Tacoma Washington at the Tacoma Dome. It's a MASSIVE poster at 24x36 inches and is a 5-color print with one glow in the dark ink! 400 posters will be available at the Tacoma Dome for tonight's show and I'll have my 50 + on sale coming up soon at my website. I'll keep everyone posted when mine go on sale. Thanks to Seizure Palace Screen Printing for getting this massive job printed and delivered to the venue on time!!!"
